----------------------------------------------------------10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY ----------------------------------------------------------STABILITY: Stable REACTIVITY: Nonreactive INCOMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER MATERIALS: Strong acids, strong oxidizers DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: N/A HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will not occur ----------------------------------------------------------11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION ----------------------------------------------------------CHRONIC TOXICITY [SPECIFIC TO ACTIVE INGREDIENT(S)]: In a 2-year feeding study, rats were fed pyrethrum at dietary levels of 10, 50 and 250 mg/kg/day. The highest level had no significant effect on growth or survival. Slight though definite liver damage was observed, especially at higher dosage levels. In a 90-day feeding study, dogs that were fed pyrethrins at a dietary level of 5,000 ppm showed tremors, ataxia, labored respiration and salivation during the first month of exposure. In rats at a dietary level of 10,000 ppm of Piperonyl Butoxide, (dosage of 650 mg/kg/day), there was a moderate reduction of weight gain, increased relative weight of the kidneys and increased relative weight of the liver. A 2-year bioassay of technical Piperonyl Butoxide for possible carcinogenicity was conducted by administering dietary levels of 5,000 and 10,000 ppm to rats and mice. In the female rats, lymphomas occurred at incidences that were dose related. In the male mice, adenomas of the lacrimal gland occurred at incidences that were dose related but were not significantly higher than that in the control group. Thus, the occurrence of this tumor in the male mice was not clearly related to the administration of Piperonyl Butoxide. DEVELOPMENTAL/REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY [SPECIFIC TO ACTIVE INGREDIENT(S)]: Rats were given pyrethrins via gavage at doses of 50, 100, and 150 mg/kg. Increased resorptions were found at the 100 and 150 mg dose levels. No significant increase in defect rate was found. Decreased reproduction occurred in rats at dose levels of 650 mg/kg/day of Piperonyl Butoxide. There was a delay of over 23 days to the first litter, reduced average number of litters, reduced average weight of pups at 4 weeks of age, and a trend to smaller litters. In a separate study, Piperonyl Butoxide was administered to rats by gavage at 300 and 1,000 mg/kg. Piperonyl Butoxide was found not to be teratogenic at levels below maternally toxic levels. MUTAGENICITY [SPECIFIC TO ACTIVE INGREDIENT(S)]: Piperonyl Butoxide is not considered to be a mutagen. U.S. EPA has evaluated this product's toxicity as part of the U.S. registration process. EPA requires extensive toxicity tests be performed before any chemical is approved for use. Based on their review of test results, they have determined that no significant risk to users, the public, or the environment exists when this product is used as indicated on the product label. ----------------------------------------------------------12.
